Cypress College Art Gallery is pleased to host the third installment of "Concrete Walls Projects" entitled GPS, in which eight young rising artists explore the changing and diverse idea of “place.” GPS is curated by Devon Tsuno, interim director of Cypress College Art Gallery beginning Spring 2010.
Navigating the topography of economics and society requires humor, storytelling ability, cultural intelligence, innovation, a sense of history and the survival skills of war. GPS is an exhibition and symposium of eight Los Angeles based artists whose art and day jobs are built on these skills.
In an effort to open up discussion, and educate students about the shifting structure of the contemporary art community, artists will be in attendance on Thursday evening, November 12, to lead an informal discussion focused on the changing idea of what it means to have a degree in art, and living as a working artist in the greater Los Angeles area. Cypress College extends a warm invitation to all to participate in this open symposium.
Artists in the exhibition have exhibited at the Hammer Museum, MIchael Kohn, Steve Turner, Carl Berg, and the Pacific Asia Museum and currently have exhibitions at the Institute of Modern Art, Australia, Torrance Art Museum, The Guild NY, Raid Projects and Chime & Co.
